and continue to harm our economy. >> moderator: senator? biden: charge is absolutely not true. barack obama did not vote to raise taxes. the vote she's referring to, john mccain voted the exact same way. it was a budget procedural vote. john mccain voted the same way, it did not raise taxes. number two, using the standard that the governor uses, john mccain voted 477 times to raise taxes. it's a bogus standard. but if you notice, gwen, the governor did not answer the question about deregulation. did not answer the question of defending john mccain about not going along with the deregulation, letting wall street run wild. he did support deregulation almost across the board. that's why we got -- >> moderator: would you like to have an opportunity to answer that? palin: i'm still on the tax thing because i want to correct you on that again, and i want to let you know what i did as a governor or mayor, i'm going to talk straight to the american people and let 'em know my track record also. as mayor every year i was in office, i did reduce taxes. i eliminated personal property taxes and eliminated s
disagreement between governor palin and me and senator mccain and barack obama, and that is that the -- we're going to fundamentally change the focus of the economic policy. we're going to focus on the middle class, because it's -- when the middle class is growing, the economy grows and everybody does well, not just focus on the wealthy and corporate america. >> thank you, senator. governor palin? >> thank you, gwen. and i thank the commission, also. i appreciate this privilege of being able to be here and speak with americans. you know, i think a good barometer here, as we try to figure out has this been a good time or a bad time in america's economy, is go to a kid's soccer game on saturday, and turn to any parent there on the sideline and ask them, "how are you feeling about the economy?" and i'll bet you, you're going to hear some fear in that parent's voice, fear regarding the few investments that some of us have in the stock market. the barometer there, i think, is going to be resounding that our economy is hurting and the federal government has not provided the sound oversight that
of economics we've gotten from the failed policy of president obama and from the failed policy of senator tester. >> congressman rehberg didn't answer the question why we should vote for him. the fact of the matter is, we had a broken healthcare system and we had to make some changes, and making sure people with people with preexisting condition have coverage. we have to hold insurance companies accountable. as far as the stimulus package goes, the shiloh road congressman provides avenue to get to one of your developments. it has been pretty important to billings. the fact is that the work that was done, is critically important we're going to move forward. i hope to get to that plant somewhere in here, or i will address it later on. >> thank you very much. now tom to your question for representative rehberg. >> yes representative rehberg. you have criticized american recovery and reinvestment act, our also cut the ribbon on a road project that used stimulus. in february 2009, you credited yourself for securing $42.5 million for montana project and that year consolidated appropriation bill
, when you look back at 2008, the debate between senator mccain and then senator obama, senator obama was cutting and slashing in his presentation there, he said some very strong, if not offensive things, to senator mccain. but he also said it with his back to senator mccain. and that was interesting tactic. a direct on offensive, talking to the people asking him the question and saying the god awful things he believed to be true about senator mccain's policies. >> because of that debate, there were critics that said that senator mccain never glanced at senator obama. >> and referred to him as that one, and there was mainstream pressure on that one. we're use today oprah and phil donahue and on the fox news channel and it's the sine quanon, and so policy is important. >> in the future, it's important. but do i have the ability to be friends with the person that's asking the question even though i don't agree with them. >> and you're going to be at the debate. what are you looking for. >> i'm going to be look for the ability to connect with the audience and senator now president obama
president obama beat senator mccain. we saw mitt romney there just the other day with chris christie, the governor from new jersey. down here in virginia, also, 13 electoral votes, highly important for both men this year. southeastern virginia, four years ago, the president did very well, especially up here in places like, newport news city, 64-36% over john mccain. governor romney felt it was important to be there also over the past several days to make sure that he can, maybe dig into some of the voters that the president had four years ago. down in florida, such a huge pot of gold in this election yet again with 29 electoral votes. the other day we saw governor romney in pinellas county, that is the western side of tampa, north of st. pete here, a 54-46 winner four years ago. mitt romney was campaigning there in two other counties in florida where president obama did very well four years ago. trying to pick into some of that vote and pick off some of those voters that is coming up in 26 days. later tonight this is what you need to keep an eye on. 8:55 p.m. eastern time in prime ti
from the deadly attack in libya. former c.i.a. director, criticizing the obama administration as a senate committee is launching its investigation. >> eric: vice president biden, stealing the show as he faced off with congressman ryan. coming up, we'll have a fair and balanced look at the message he may have sent to voters. >> this is a bunch of stuff. look, here is the deal -- >> what does that mean a bunch of stuff? >> it means it's simply inaccurate. >> arthel: it's irish.

the middle class even more. during the 2008 debates, senator obama assured us he fully understood our problems and he had the right solutions. he promised to make health care more affordable. president obama promise to get our spending under control by cutting the deficit in half. he was so confident that shortly after taking office president obama said he would fix the economy in three years or face a one-term proposition. today he has broken the promises. his words have no credibility. host: that was the republican weekly address. ralph from the main joins us on the independent line. caller: i was born in 1950, 61 years old. i have gone through all kinds of things. my dad was in the service -- i have had two fathers. i am taking care of my mother now who is just getting one cut back after another through social security. medical benefits. i am not happy. i know what is going on. in the last five years i have taking care of her 24-7. i have had time to educate myself on what it is. until we understand who the enemy is, nothing will change and their plans will continue. there are manu
experience than senator obama did. he was on the foreign relations committee. >> norah, i voted to send men and women to war. i've been to iraq and afghanistan. i've met with our troops to get perspectives. i've been to the funerals, i've talked to the widows, talked to the wives, the moms and the dads. that's something. that matters. >> yeah. the sitting vice president shouldn't have much problem landing a blow on a claim like that. though perhaps rather than boxing, it's more accurate to think of thursday night as tag team wrestling with each candidate making the power move that their partner missed. of course, ultimately a vice presidential candidate's relationship to his running mate is more like hulk hogan's bandana or sledgehammer, fleshy accessory. they will be in the ring on thursday and they'll both have opponent's partner firmly in their sights. with me at the table is steve kornacki, the host of the cycle and senior writer for salon.com. sigh yu is the founding director of new american leaders project. a national organization for specifically focused on preparing first and second
's true he runs as such. he's also a liberal senator who is stuck to the hip to the obama administration roar. so on stimulus, on obamacare, and this is a state that is not necessarily overly liberal, in fact, it's conservative in many ways. they see this opportunity, they have this young man who is relatively new to politics, very charismatic, he's been a big fundraiser and he's already made up a lot of ground. at one point josh mandel was down 17 points in the polls. the fact some of them now has him ahead shows there's a real openness out there in ohio voters to change. >> what is really interesting about the outside groups, kim, is they are hanging barack obama's policies around sherrod brown's neck and i think that will have something to do with what happens in ohio at the presidential level. >> all right, dan. we have to take one more break. when we come back, hits and when we come back, hits and misses of the week.

barack obama had the house, the senate and himself one party rule. if themed them -- they wanted to get things done like trying to figure out the mythical tax for shipping jobs overseas, they should have done it then. but the fact is, they didn't pass a budget then when they had complete control and they're not passing one now. guest: , look the republicans had a meeting after the inauguration where they made a clear decision to block anything he tried to do at any cost. that's been evidenced by their entire voting record, voting no down the line as guy pointed out. and the reason a budget can't get passed because house republicans will not pass a reasonable budget. they pass a budget with bunch of special interest and balloons the deficit. that's not acceptable and that's not what the voters want. that's why we need to kick the tea party out of congress. when we do that, we can finally get a reasonable budget passed. guest: i'm glad we're going to conspiracy theories on secret meetings. let's focus on the fact that the senate has not passed a budget. we can have every excuse in the b
-up to the election, then senator barack obama got more than a couple of flags waved. there was the scene of him standing in a stage of iowa, were citing him -- all but one had his hand over his heart during the national anthem. that was barack obama. he explained in independence, iowa, he said, and i quote. my attitude is that i'm less concerned about what you're wearing on your lapel than what is in your heart. well, again, try that with your wife. i love you, but i'm not buying you those big diamond earrings because i'm less concerned with what you wear on your ears and what's inside your heart. president obama was asked again about the pin in an interview in cedar rapids, iowa. he said that the truth is is that right after 9/11, i have been. shortly after 9/11, particularly as we are talking about the iraq war, that became a substitute for true patriotism, which is speaking out on issues that are of importance to our national security. those are his exact words. yes, he said that. it just kept getting worse. the pin he said he didn't like, he actually used to live like until everyone in amer
as lobbyists. in 2007, thurber advised then senator obama, who championed sweeping lobby reform. >> big money and lobbyists were clearly drowning out the aspirations of the american people. >> reporter: lobbyist jake abrahm off had just gone to prison for cheating clients and bribing congress. lawmakers passed new reforms that required strict public disclosure of lobbying activities and limited the gifts and trips lobbyists can buy from members of congress. today thurber has some surprising words about president obama. >> president obama in his campaign in 2008 said he was going to change the way washington works. >> i will launch the most sweeping ethics reform in history to make the white house the people's house and send the washington lobbyists back to k street. ( applause ) >> he hasn't. he's failed. because if you want to get a piece of legislation like his health care piece through, you have to bring in big interests. he did. he brought in a.a.r.p., he brought in hospital associations, he brought in the a.m.a. in a coalition to support that. >> reporter: increasingly lobbyists aren't j

that barack obama's budget was put in the house and senate and got revoked. that a stellar argument that we're going to talk about barack obama's budget because he's gotten zero votes in house and senate. when you are negotiating, it's hard to negotiate with yourself. the democrats of never figured out a way to get their coalition around one thing, especially in the house. we look forward to negotiating with them and increasing job growth. host: have democrats given up? guest: that is completely untrue. we've invested a lot of money in this district. the real story here is this race is in play at all and the first place. the reason it is employees because before there was a tea party, steve king was the tea party. he was the original tea party. this race should not be in play. this is a longtime incumbent and has been in a long time. it should have never come into play. he was checked out of the district and cared more about hanging out with michele bachmann. last time i checked, there is no border there. this race is in play and we are all in. guest: they're all in without any money. steve
with the seat held by retiring senator joe lieberman. connecticut hasn't elected a republican to the senate in three decades and mitt romney is running well behind president obama there, why is this race so close? we're back with dan henninger, matt, and mary anastasia o'grady. you were there for the republican primary, why is she doing so well? >> she's a marketing specialist and manage today rebrand herself for the campaign. she lost terribly. >> 12 points. >> spent 50 million dollars and got nowhere. this time around she saw what her vulnerabilities were, people saw her as overly aggressive and a wrestling promoter and turning herself using ads into a grandmotherly-- >> and people out of the ring, is that it. >> pretty much. and she has a very controlled message and managed to go on-- >> what is she running on, what is her message? >> her message is fairly negative. on the positive side i was in business, i bring this experience. >> i'm an outsider, not part of congress. >> right. >> i can shake it up. >> exactly, the reason why she's ahead here, because she starting in august went very
house senate and president and barack obama's first term. that's because it would require them to report to the government the women they have on their payroll, the men have on that there'll come how much they pay both groups. and that's an attempt of a government should try to equalize pay between groups of women and groups of men. rather than as the law holds right now, men and women in comparable jobs in the same job. so what they're trying to do is have equal pay for equal work, not equal pay for equal work, which is two very different things. there's no reason why groups of women and groups of men in the same firm should be paid the same if they have radically different jobs. look at exxon, for example, that is a group of men and oil drilling activities. it's a dirty dangerous job. you could not get me to do. you have to pay people a lot to risked their lives doing that kind of work. exxon has a group of women in communications, assistant jobs, publications. there's no reason these two groups should be necessarily paid the same. but the paycheck benefit would be moving toward requir

: that was then senator barack obama take on rising gas prices at a campaign stop vowing to raise prices on gas and oil companies calling for a new direction in america's oil prices as prices in california soared to an all-time lie over the weekend. what happened? >> reporter: the president is here in california driving by some of these gas station, he has seen prices like this behind me. the 76 station, $4.99 for regular gasoline. regular unled is $5.39. there is a number of reasons for this. one, high demand, two, california has more strict standard for gasoline. you can't import it from outside the state. the refineries that make it gas, several of them have gone down because of a major fire in august. prices are high and consumers are not happy. >> i have never seen gas prices anywhere near this. >> it's shock. i have a lot of driving to done i have to fill up my car. >> i just spent $70 and this will only last me a week. >> it's ridiculous. >> reporter: governor brown changed the standard to the winter standard that could bring the prices down some. but even if they come down some they are signifi
the republicans where as they have bought obama at every turn. going back to the senate, he said he was going to plan to make sure he was a one-term president. they will not get my vote in this case. >> thank you. juanita is watching us from florida. >> i would like to first say the moderator did phenomenal job. however, i would like to say this campaign has just been sickening to me. you want to deal with issues and not with persons -- personhood. you do not want to attack anybody poesy person had. -- anybody's personhood it. listening to people calling in and of making a rude and disrespectful comments about the candidates that were the vice president and mr. paul ryan, making negative comments about them. i just think that -- did we say we are in strong the country, but let me tell you what makes you week. when you can be rude and disrespectful to the authorities of this country. everybody talks about their relievers -- they want to do the right thing. nobody is really doing the right thing. we are not a respectful country. there is so much rudeness. until we corrected that issue in this c
at 11:00 a.m., the debate in the connecticut u.s. senate race. after this, last wednesday's debate between president obama and republican presidential candidate mitt romney. this week on news americas with he are joined by democrat in new york and the efforts to retake the thousands november, congress man, thank you very much for being here. >> guest: great to be with you.yq >> host: we got to reporters here in d.c. in the studio. aaron bleak, a political reporter there, henry jackson, ap political reporter. i think you got the first question. gl ahead. g congressman the race for the house has tack and backseat for both the presidency and the senate. most analyst don't think democrats have a great chance of retaking the house. but i have heard more statements from you. can you tell us what percentage chance you think your party has of taking the 25 seats you need in order to reclaim the chamber? >> well, i can tell that you we have the ball on the republican 20-yard line. i never said that optimism wins an election. it doesn't. you got to be realistic to n election. we started o
back in a 2008. about 61% of those under the age of 30 supporting senator obama in 2008. only 39 percent for john mccain. it increased under post- graduate. a little different among high- school graduates, because the president getting only 47 percent, john mccain with 53 percent. what will we see in 2012? guest: keitel brought up the party line that mitt romney is advocating for. brought up the party line. on the issue of turnout to vote. 66% voted for obama. two or three weeks ago there was a poll released, and in the poll, 18-29 year old age bracket is 45% 4 mitt romney. the first time a republican has broken the 40 ce% bracket for youth. governor romney has the experience to create jobs. the 18-29 year olds are either coming nearing graduation and wanting jobs or are suffering in the obama economy. i think you will see a turnaround -- turnout in the polls and will favor for mitt romney. host: we have been focusing on key sectors of the electorate. we will get back to your calls in just a moment. what shape your ideology? why are you a democrat and why you support president ob
of senator rob portman republican of ohio who was brought in to play the role of obama but have become a much broader advisor and we talked about how we have heard about how romney felt lonely on the trail. portman fulfilled that and he is now become a big advisor on messaging and we saw that whole package coming together in the debate. >> is there any regret by romney that he didn't pick portman as is a vice president and his fight in in a help or hindrance? >> why don't you ask us in 12 hours? [laughter] >> why did romney pick ryan. it wasn't somebody that he thought -- many people thought he would pit. >> it was someone that no one -- the only person at the top of the romney urbanization that wanted to pick paul ryan was mitt romney. and he picked paul ryan for a simple reason, the same reason that he and the olympics won a lot of advisers told him he shouldn't and that is because he wanted to. he is the ceo of the campaign and he is his own karl rove and that has caused them a lot of problems. he is the product, not the ceo but that is how he set it up. they feel good about the ryan choic
there. >> you know, i had to laugh. because while it is true, senator obama did not have a lot of foreign policy experience, what he did to shore that up was to bring in joe biden as his vp candidate. what did mitt romney do? he brought in paul ryan who has even less, if you could imagine that, foreign policy experience except maybe perhaps voting against tougher sanctions on iran while he was in congress. as far as that argument's concerned, i think it's rather debunked. i want to read to you very quickly a quote from mitt romney from that video with the 47%. this is his -- this is his foreign policy in a nutshell. so what do you do -- this is about peace in the middle east. you say you move things along the best way you can. you hope for some degree of stability. but you recognize this is an unsolved problem and we kick the ball down the field and hope ultimately somehow something will happen and resolve it. that's what mitt romney said on foreign policy behind closed doors. whatever he says today in a couple of hours, you got to juxtapose that to that quote in the video when
we're going to cover until the election day. they backed then senator obama by double digits four years ago. now women voters are evenly split on the president and mitt romney. erasing an 18-point lead that the presidt had just last month. maria cardona is in washington, or as i like to call her, mcdmc. republican strategist and cnn contributor in new york is ana navaro there. >> i like what l.c. calls me, the solution. >> that's right. we came up with that. >> can we believe the numbers? how is this going to shape tonight's vice presidential debate if anybody is putting stock in these numbers? >> i think the movement clearly come comes from the bounce that mitt romney enjoyed from his performance last week. the question, is it sustainable? look, there's no question that there was nowhere to go but up for mitt romney. because the gap was so big. the question is going into tonight's debate, will it hold? and that's going to be a big question. and i'm going to say probably not. because mitt romney gave us a big opening, even just yesterday where he continued to, i would say flip flo
two years, under the leadership of both senator dodd and casey, the obama administration and congress have provided new key investments in early learning and children's health program, including the $500 million for race to the top challenge fund of over $3 billion in head start, early head start and head start funding and nearly $33 billion in new funds for the children health insurance program, which also expanding coverage to 4 million are children. simply put, strong investments in education and health of the next generation are essential to ensuring the economic prosperity and security of america. and deeper investments, particularly early childhood education is something very personal to me and not just because i have about 50 little kids at my house. at least that's what it feels like. these investments are fundamental in places like washington, my home state of west virginia, actually all over the country, where poverty has gripped families for generations today, nearly one in four children lives in poverty in america. inequality is the highest it's been in a generation and no
to remind viewers that he does not support president obama. in the last debate, scott brown would not commit to supporting mitch mcconnell as senate majority leader. she will try to tie him to the republican party. in the last the great -- in the last debate with scott brown, he said that justice scalia was a model for him, and elizabeth warren hit him hard on that. scott brown has said that the conservative is an ideal justice for him. host: why are people paying attention to this race? guest: this is one of the closest races in the country. scott brown is one of two vulnerable republican incumbent senators, up for reelection this year. the other one being dean heller in nevada. scott brown has been ahead in some. we've kind of seen consistently her being a few points up over scott brown. there was one poll out this week that was considered encouraging for brown, showing him up again, possibly, and apparently as a result of mitt romney's debate performance. mitt romney, being a former governor of massachusetts, is very unpopular in the state. most polls have showed him lagging obama by a hu
or the opposite. >> it's not fair because barack obama-- this is a man who hasn't pressed the democrat senate to put forth a budget. >> we znt had a budget. >> so it's absurd to say that. do i believe that mitt romney needs to off specifics? i do. that's what will inspire confidence in voters. i think the more information they have with respect to education, with respect to the economy and respect to how, how you're going to implement the changes i think the better, but for barack obama who hasn't offered any specifics at all is a ridiculous claim. >> i don't think that's necessarily true, for americans making $250,000 or less and he had a fair and balanced proechd. >> he's not cutting taxes, he's raising via obamacare and a ton of taxes on the middle class. >> we neat fact checks and nonpartisan, says that mitt romney's numbers are not true and if they're making that-- >> cbo said what about obamacare, it's going to raise taxes on the middle class. you've got conflicting statements. >> 30 days left. can you keep the passion going? >> i can. >> and great to see you this morning. >> thank you.
for republican senators mccain, ayotte, and ron johnson who say either the obama administration is misleading congress and the american people, or it's blaming the entire failure on the intelligence community. ambassador rice claims the administration launched a comprehensive effort to determine what happened in bengazhi, but the administration failed to secure the scene of the terrorist attack for three weeks. a state department memo showed the security team in benghazi was denied a dc-3 aircraft they were asked for before the attack. there is nothing to prove a plane would have prevented the murders of those four miles hour. in washington, peter dosy, fox news. >>> hearing a sect for a man behind an antimuslim film. he was convictd in of bank fraud in 2010. a judge will decide whether he should be sent back to prison for violating his violations. a few were lying to his parole officers and. >>> palo gabrielle will spend 18 months behind bars for making photo copies of pope benedict xvi ben's private documents and leaking them to an italian journalist. the court reduced gabrielle's sentenced
